On top of this, seven other public health regions will be moving to new levels of the framework

Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit and Timiskaming Health Unit will move to the orange zone. 

While the yellow zone will additionally include Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit and Renfrew County and District Health Unit.

As all regions now officially enter the framework, the government is reminding residents that they should still be avoiding social gatherings and stay home when possible

"The best defense against the virus and all of its variants of concern remains continuing to stay at home, avoiding social gatherings, only travelling outside of your community for essential purposes, and limiting close contacts to your household or those you live with," stated Dr. David Williams, chief medical officer of health.
